HOPPER® COOLER FAQ
WHAT IS A YETI HOPPER® COOLER?
It's the ice-for-days, tough-as-nails soft cooler. The YETI Hopper® Cooler is built to go the extra mile with its highly portable design and construction. It's leak-resistant, puncture-resistant, able to keep ice for days, and ready to hit the trail, boat, or blind.
IS THERE A WARRANTY ON THE HOPPER® COOLER?
The YETI Hopper® Cooler comes with a three year warranty. For more information, please visit our Warranty Information page.
HOW LONG WILL THE HOPPER® COOLER KEEP ICE?
The Hopper® Cooler, with its welded DryHide™ double-TPU Shell, thick ColdCell™ Insulation, and MagShield Access top provide serious cold-holding power. But due to all of the variables that affect ice retention, and because every adventure is different, we believe it might be misleading to make specific claims about how long a cooler will hold ice.
If you want to maximise ice retention, check out our ice retention guide.
WHEN I THREW A BAG OF ICE IN MY HOPPER® COOLER AND MY CHEAP COOLER, THE ICE LASTED LONGER IN MY CHEAP COOLER. WHY?
Just like the Tundra® Cooler, the Hopper® Cooler is designed to keep ice colder longer, but there are many variables that can affect your ice. This includes the temperature of the cooler when being loaded, ice quality, ice quantity, type of ice (crushed, block, cube), outside environment, exposure to direct sunlight, etc. We suggest cooling your cooler down by “sacrificing” a bag of ice in your cooler before putting in a second bag with your refreshments.
If you want to make the most out of your ice retention, please view our ice retention guide.
CAN YOU PUT DRY ICE IN A HOPPER® SOFT COOLER?
Nope, not a good idea. Hopper® Coolers are not compatible with dry ice. Using dry ice will cause the airtight vessel to explode.
WHAT SIZE HOPPER® COOLER SHOULD I BUY?
The Hopper® Cooler was engineered for portability. Any size is the perfect on-the-go cooler for kayaking, floating the river, or short camping trips. Something to consider when choosing a size is that ideally you would want to fill the cooler with as much ice as possible, minimising air space to achieve maximum ice retention. Therefore, if you only have a small number of items to keep cool, you would want to choose a smaller cooler or vice versa.
HOW MANY CANS WILL FIT IN MY HOPPER® COOLER?
With plenty of ice to help chill your drinks, here is the number of 12 oz. cans that will fit inside the YETI Hopper® Cooler. Ideally you want to have an ice-to-contents ratio by volume of at least 2:1.
WHAT OPTIONS AND ACCESSORIES ARE AVAILABLE FOR MY HOPPER® COOLER?
Accessorise your Hopper® Cooler with the flexibility of the HitchPoint™ Grid. Easily fasten bottle openers, carabiners, key chains, or accessories through the nylon strapping. You can also outfit your Hopper® Cooler with the MOLLE Zinger.
WARNING: Do not leave your soft cooler open in the presence of children or animals. Entrapment and suffocation can occur. Do not machine wash. Do not dry in an oven or clothes dryer. Do not use bleach.
